Braunton Shooting Target Club
Founded as the Braunton Home Guard Rifle Club in 1944 incorporating the Braunton Ladies Home Guard Rifle Club. It moved to its present indoor range in 1968 from the former Drill Hall, where with the generosity of its benefactor Miss Norris, a new 25 yd range was built.
This has been subsequently expanded with the addition of a 10m air range catering for 6 yd and 10m rifle and pistol and match crossbow.
In recent years, the club has supported the growth of shooting as a sport for young people aiding the development of the North Devon Scout Target Club. This has shown the huge talent amongst the young people and this has been fostered by the club to the stage where it currently has seven young people in both the Great Britain Junior Rifle and Pistol Squads.
This has lead to three of them becoming members of the Team England Shooting Academy in both rifle and air pistol; a feeder squad for the senior National Teams.
Members of the Club represent the Devon County Small-bore Rifle Association in various teams including small-bore rifle and air pistol.
The club is affiliated to the National Small-bore Rifle Association and the Devon County Small-bore Rifle Association and is working to achieve Clubmark Status. It is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club.
